Sydney Willoughby, Staff Writer

November 19, 2015

Thank you to the A and B days for making my life easier. Thank you to the two days that split my homework load in half. And most of all, thank you for lowering my stress level. It may seem like A-days and B-days are the norm for schedules at Liberty, but it truly allows all of us to function. Personally,...

Sophie Ossorio, Staff Writer

November 19, 2015

“Wow! What a chill teacher!” Last year those were my initial thoughts on Liberty High School band teacher Mr. Tanner. Now, I know that Mr. Tanner is way more than just “chill”. Mr. Tanner is genuine in that he has a passion for music and teaching, which he has shown by always being excited...

Liberty makes all of us better

Sean Bates, Senior Writer

November 19, 2015

Liberty High School is a 4 year experience that makes all of us better as people, inside and outside the classroom. I am thankful for the Friday night lights. The crazy atmosphere of the student body, the mouth watering smell of burgers on the grill, the love and support of the player’s families,...

Mrs. Olsson, thank you for all you do!

Carlyn Schmidgall, Senior Writer

November 19, 2015

She can be seen in her colorful corner office, keeping careful watch over the library and its occupants. She’s often taken for granted by Liberty’s student body, but she is so much more than simply a librarian, stocking bookshelves and shushing noisy students. I am so thankful that Mrs. Olsson...

Wednesday–a savior of sleep

Bailie Schultz, Staff Writer

November 19, 2015

There are seven days in a week and only one that is a school day and you can sleep in two and a half hours later than any other day. Wednesday the one day when staying up a little later than normal won’t matter because you have extra time to recharge and that is what I am thankful for this year. Liberty...

As the holiday season is approaching and Thanksgiving is just around the corner, it makes me realize how many things there are to be thankful for.

Appreciating teachers outside of Teacher Appreciation week

Abby Russell, Staff Writer

November 19, 2015

Not understanding a topic in a class is something every student can relate to, and having a caring and understanding teacher can really help boost the grasp of difficult material. This Thanksgiving, I would like to appreciate the teachers here at Liberty, who honestly care about my grades and help...

Thanking the bell

Chris Hasenheyer, Senior Writer

November 19, 2015

When people make appointment sin their lives, schedule meetings, or arrange plans, their numbers are clean and easy to remember. The time is always ending in five or zero, trivial thing to note it could be said. This is the time of year to appreciate the minutia of our lines and things we take for...

Science labs keeping the school day lively

Siri Christopherson, Staff Writer

November 19, 2015

It’s been a pretty bland day so far. You zone out during algebra, struggle through the AP world test, and now you’re tiredly entering chem class. You’re in for a treat- it’s a lab day! School can be a pretty boring deal. Sitting in classes all day where you listen to teachers lecture, take...

Liberty’s variety of classes is a blessing in disguise

Sarah Flash, Opinion Editor

November 19, 2015

As I sat in a college interview a couple weeks ago, I found myself being asked the common question, “Why do you like our school?” I answered by mentioning the community-like aspects, the great program in the major I want to pursue and the variety of classes the college encourages students to take...

Liberty culture: a family to call my own

Sara Bluhm, Photography Editor

November 19, 2015

I am thankful, not only today but every day for the culture of the Liberty Student Body and the individuals who are driving the change in a positive manner. Freshman year I was terrified of everyone and everything around me. I knew maybe two or three upper-classmen who didn’t strike fear into my...

The Patriot Press: a unique and awesome class

Samantha Kelderman, Sports Editor

November 19, 2015

A classroom ran by students, our amazing advisor Ms. Daughters, Harold, the J-wall, super cool, smart kids (still better than yearbook), parties every issue of the paper, stories both purposeful and interesting, pictures either beautiful or too dark, power claps, the strange yet sentimental senior gifts--including...
